#rockbox log for 2007-05-10

00:00:11jhMikeSLlorean: I should ask, in what manner? It makes the scrollwheel crisper though it will need tweaking. I don't think polling GPIO ports will load the CPU very much though.
00:01:07LloreanjhMikeS: I'm not really sure. The main "problem" I have with the wheel wouldn't be fixed by this anyway.
00:01:38jhMikeSwhat's that?
00:02:17LloreanJust the fact that when the UI gets sluggish, the wheel queues up a bunch of events, so you end up having the volume jump +20 or something.
00:02:25LloreanI'm not even sure if that's still around
00:02:31LloreanI haven't booted up my Sansa in a while.

00:04:35bluebrotherH10_007quick, check this out:
00:04:51bluebrotherI hope it's a bit more descriptive ;-)
00:05:06jhMikeSLlorean: It actually seems better and I fixed a priority inversion in the i2c driver
00:05:43 Join case__ [0] (
00:06:22LloreanIt's more that I'm used to the iPod than anything else, the Sansa has discrete wheel movements so it makes sense that they aren't dropped like they are on the iPod.
00:06:32H10_007quickOk, I think I get it
00:07:24jhMikeSfrom what I can see, I don't think that level of filtering makes sense here as on iPod then
00:07:40case__hi. i've a Sansa e260 for 12 hours and playing with rockbox since then... will lurk around for a while :)
00:08:49LloreanjhMikeS: It definitely does not. A user here can move 4 clicks, and even if it doesn't happen immediately, they should expect 4 actions to take place.
00:10:37jhMikeSthat's what I'm aiming for but I seem to be getting two jumps per click for some reason :\ will figure it out.
00:14:15LloreanThat's because each click is two actions
00:14:31LloreanThere's basically a half-click and a full click.
00:14:48LloreanSomeone fixed that at some point with the old wheel driver, if I recall.

00:15:42Bawitdabastill no rockbox for iPod 80gb? :(
00:15:55LloreanBawitdaba: You can tell that from the front page of the site, yes.
00:15:57*Bawitdaba wants to be first tester
00:16:19H10_007quickbluebrother: am I right at the bottom?
00:16:47LloreanBawitdaba: There is every likelihood that the only testers will be programmers working on it until there is either a patch in flyspray, or it's in SVN, so you can watch either of those rather than repeatedly asking about it.
00:17:55 Quit donutman25 ("ChatZilla [Firefox]")
00:19:20bluebrotherH10_007quick, yes, get_new_value() should return you the new value you want to add to your history. In your case this most would be adc_scan I guess
00:19:52case__Is it a normal behaviour that i can't connect my Sansa with the USB cable when using rockbox?
00:20:17case__(it gave me device errors in syslog)
00:20:18bluebrotherI haven't followed the exact code, so this is just a way to do it
00:20:31bluebrothercase__, rockbox doesn't handle usb yet.
00:20:43Lloreancase__: Turn off your Sansa, and plug in the cable while it's turned off
00:20:49bluebrotherafaik on the sansa we can't simply reboot into some disk mode like on the ipods
00:21:05case__Llorean, yes i've noticed i can use the default firmware that way
00:21:16Lloreanbluebrother: We kinda can, actually
00:21:31Lloreanbluebrother: If someone would just tell Rockbox to shutdown upon USB insertion, it'd be remarkably similar to the iPod disk mode.
00:21:32bluebrotherwe can? Do we do it too?
00:21:39LloreanWe do not do it.
00:21:46bluebrotherah, so we don't do :)
00:21:53LloreanWe can, but don't. =/
00:22:21bluebrotherwell, then someone program it! Do it now and make me proud of Rockbox! *g*
00:22:32LloreanThe original firmware behaves remarkably like iPod disk mode under the right cirumstances, so if Rockbox just shutdown upon USB insert, as long as the cable stayed in, it'd restart into the OF, go into USB mode. On disconnect, it shuts down and restarts into Rockbox again.
00:22:55LloreanEverything's in place except shutdown upon USB insert, and I'm not sure if that's being held up by anything, or if maybe there's a reason it's not possible and I don't know of it.
00:23:06case__how hard is it to set up a developpement environement for rockbox? (from a c/unix coder with no embeded devices / cross compiling experience)
00:23:07bluebrotheroh, that sounds nice. Do we miss the knowledge to do the proper reboot or is it simply not done yet?
00:23:28bluebrothercase__, if you use the script for building the cross compilers it isn't hard at all
00:23:40LloreanThe device automatically powers up with a USB cable connected, so I don't think a reboot would be necessary, just a shutdown.
00:23:41bluebrothercheckout svn and run tools/
00:24:21bluebrotherscrapt the filename, it's tools/
00:25:01chrisjs169|brbI seem to be stuck...if I use binutils 2.17-3, I get "unrecognized option '−−hash-style=gnu'". Using the latest build from CVS segfaults...
00:25:15LloreanIsn't 2.16 the recommended version?
00:25:20bluebrotherit is
00:25:28case__about the USB support, is it planned or not at all ?
00:25:38Lloreancase__: Planned, but possibly very hard to do.
00:25:43case__the fallback to the default firmware is quite anoying there, in fact.
00:25:44peturcase__: check out
00:25:44bluebrothera usb stack for Rockbox is a planned project for GSoC
00:27:07Nico_Plinuxstb_: could the wpsbuild script copy the backdrop and progressbar bitmaps to the tar too ?
00:27:24Nico_Pand avoid creating the dir ?
00:28:05case__Llorean, again, i have no embended devices experience, but a USB stack seems to be a very common thing these days, no? how can it be so difficult to do/port ?
00:28:41Lloreancase__: Writing drivers for unknown hardware is one of the key difficulties.
00:29:02LloreanWe have a serious shortage on hardware documentation for the PortalPlayer based devices.
00:29:21LloreanWe also haven't needed a USB stack until recently
00:29:41LloreanBut there will (hopefully) be one by the end of the summer, meaning that for the devices we do have a reasonable likelihood of drivers for, there should be hope
00:30:08bluebrotheranother problem with embedded programming is that you are usually low on cpu power and memory which might complicate things
00:30:17case__i see
00:30:19bluebrotherdepending on what you want to do ;-)
00:30:40case__anyone regreating the good old time of RS-232? ;)
00:30:40bluebrotherbut the bigger issue is the lack of documentation of the hardware
00:30:53Lloreancase__: Most of our other hardware has a USB-ATA bridge, if I understand, meaning that we didn't need an actual USB stack.
00:30:57bluebrotherrs232 is still used in embedded devices :)
00:30:59chrisjs169|brbSince this computer is used as a build server for Rockbox, does anyone have any suggestions for fixing binutils/ld so that I can get it compiling again?
00:31:08 Quit H10_007quick ("ChatZilla [Firefox]")
00:31:30case__ya sure, at the end of this world, rs232 will overcome :)

00:57:49jhMikeShmmm...posting wheel events without repeat flags seems the key. I really don't know what the logic is for having it there since wheels don't repeat.
00:59:13LloreanOn the iPod it's to keep you from scrolling past the top/bottom I believe

01:00:35jhMikeSLlorean: ah...yeah, that'll happen here
01:01:08LloreanNot so bad here, though

01:02:33Aloneahey, I think I used to press menu or power when I turn my gigabeat back on and it would resume the song where I left it when I turned it off. Its not doing it anymore. Also, it randomly crashes now. Screen goes clear, but light is still on, and I have to use the battery switch to turn it off. Its been doing this for a week or so now

03:03:35linuxstbsaratoga: I know - I've been there...
03:04:04linuxstbI think my advice would be to not expect to be able to do it in a few hours....
03:05:34saratogano i no longer expect that
03:05:57saratogathe maddening thing is I got the old WMA code working great with a front end for dumping to WAV
03:06:08saratogabut the last years changes move almost everything
03:06:16linuxstbYes, I know.

03:08:30 Join perldiver [0] (
03:08:58linuxstbAnother approach would be to treat ffmpeg as a reference, and implement a "wma2wav" program yourself. i.e. start by writing an ASF parser, then add the wma decoding, taking bits from ffmpeg as and when you can.

03:13:03linuxstbI think you would end up with a better product - i.e. something designed for Rockbox. I'm thinking mainly about the ASF parsing parts of the code.

04:35:56eckwhat filesystems does rockbox (for ipod) support?
04:40:39rdswell, I installed build r13367-070510 and the latest bootloader. My ipod video 60GB is off, I connect it to my laptop, It boots into rockbox, shows the main menu and it hangs, i.e, you can't do anything, menu doesn't respond, although it isn't completely hung, the screen brightness goes down after a few seconds and goes up when i touch the clickwheel.

05:40:09livingtmsoftware decoding takes a hell of a lot of processor/power im assuming
05:41:39midkaylivingtm: right, we don't (currently..) use the broadcom decoder at all in the 5G.
05:41:48livingtmno specs?
05:41:51midkayso it's not very fast on the 5G, unfortunately.

05:45:08livingtmi mean, its not an apple chip, i assume broadcom would want peopl eto be able to use the chip
05:45:15midkaynot too sure.. but some important stuff we don't have..
05:45:34midkayafaik, they only give out the docs to the companies that buy the chips or so...
05:45:38scorchethat is a proprietary chip produced for the ipods afaik

06:09:22livingtmit isnt possible to reverse engineer the apple firmware?
06:11:28livingtmjust to figure out how the video decompression works?
06:13:16midkayi don't believe so.. or it'd be a lot of work.
06:13:21kkurbjunit's possible, but it's difficult
06:13:23 Part digerati1338
06:13:41livingtmmaybe boot some debugger then the apple firmware or something?
06:14:01livingtmim not a low level hardware guy, obviously
06:14:07livingtmnot beyond tinkering anyhow
06:14:14kkurbjunon the gigabeat, shoora figured out the lcd initialization, and that's a string of 30 or so characters that have to be sent, but we don't know what any of that is doing
06:14:46kkurbjunyou can see what the code is on a very low level, but it doesn't really tell you what all the different registers do or what their purpose is without the datasheets
06:14:56livingtmim looking at the data sheet for one of the audio decoders
06:15:00kkurbjunor without flipping bits to see their results
06:15:12kkurbjunand that's a pretty long process
06:15:22livingtmlooks like basically the DSP takes the encoded data in from the main CPU and spit the auto out directly to the D/A's
06:15:33livingtmvideo would be similar?
06:15:49livingtmCPU -> DSP (broadcom) -> LCD?
06:16:35kkurbjunsomewhat, but if you look at those audio decoders, theres usually iic interfaces that you use to actually setup the chip, and without understanding what the registers are it's a pretty blind process
06:16:55kkurbjunand not very fun at that to mess around with imho
06:17:23CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
06:17:23*scorche plugs his reveng
06:17:28livingtmwhats iic? is that different from the data bus the cpu and DSP are on?
06:17:30scorchemaching into the ipod
06:17:34*scorche hears a ding
06:18:09kkurbjunthere's a bunch of ways that chips communicate from large parallel busses, to smaller serial interfaces
06:18:17kkurbjunIIC is one of those serial interfaces
06:18:33 Quit rds ("Leaving")
06:18:42livingtma hardware standard?
06:18:49kkurbjunthere's also spi, iis, etc
06:18:55kkurbjunthey are standards, yes
06:19:01livingtmokay i've use SPI's on microcontrollers
06:19:18livingtm"serial peripheral interface" or something like that
06:19:55kkurbjunthey have a general way of talking, but the specific "language" if you will of each chip is different
06:19:55livingtmthats just shift register driven if I remember correctly
06:21:49kkurbjunso it's not like you can say, this chip uses iic, now I know how to talk to it. This is all a generic example, I have no idea what interfaces that broadcom chip uses, I'm just making a point that it's not always a really straightforward process without the datasheets or userguides.
06:23:14livingtmkkurbjun, no i understand
06:23:26scorcheit just isnt realistic to say "revengineer it"
06:23:34livingtmkkurbjun, just wondering if there was more than one data bus
06:23:59livingtmi thought maybe you could watch data being sent to a particular address on the bus
06:25:12kkurbjunI gotcha, yes, that's all possible, but it's just much more difficult without any kind of reference information.
06:26:01livingtmkkurbjun, I would have thought it was harder to decrypt a dvd.. but....
06:26:29scorcheit isnt
06:26:40kkurbjunand in todays age, it's not like reverse engineering one chip is as rewarding unless someone is really interested in the platform, electronic product lifetimes are so short now

08:37:11GodEaterI'd really hoped that writing that wiki page on the 80GB iPod would stop the forum posts. But now we're just getting dumb suggestions instead. sheesh
08:40:19LloreanUnfortunately, explaining things to users in a clear and rational way doesn't work to well for users who don't understand the explanation. =/
08:41:19amiconnThis ipod80 issue is getting annoying
08:41:22GodEaterMaybe I should add a footnote : "If you didn't understand any of the above - may I suggest"
08:41:54GodEaterLinusN did say he was going to put it on the agenda at Devcon - maybe it'll go away
08:41:59amiconnProbably something to do for me on devcon friday if LinusN lends me his ipod80. But maybe he wants to do it himself...
08:42:02GodEaterare you going amiconn ?
08:42:14GodEaterthat answers that then :)
08:42:30amiconnThis shouldn't take more than a few hours if we do it in the ata driver
08:42:43LinusNi am considering some 80gb work at devcon, yes :-)
08:42:44GodEaterI think you should just steal it from him amiconn - your way sounds much quicker than his :)
08:43:05haxamiconn: you got an 80gb ipod too?
08:43:15*hax just looked in
08:43:26haxamiconn: oh i do, and the firmware is driving me crazy, i really wanna try rockbox
08:43:40haxi hate that i cant pick what i want by directory, it's so stupid
08:43:42LinusNi'm not particularly fond of the ata driver solution, but if that's what people wants, then let's do it that way
08:43:48GodEaterI had a quick look at the ata_mmc stuff - but it very quickly went over my head. I *really* need to brush up my C code.
08:44:07GodEaterand probably my math too
08:44:18LinusNthe ipod performance sucks anyway, so why not let it suck even more :-)
08:44:23haxi know C, can i do something to improve the situation?
08:44:47GodEaterhax: yes, download the rockbox source code and change it to make it work!
08:45:02haxGodEater: is there any way i can accidentally brick the thing?
08:45:15GodEaterHax: if you find a way, you'll be the first
08:45:16haxGodEater: and do i have to be on *nix to do it? (i mainly use winxp these days)
08:45:31haxGodEater: how exactly do you get debugging info off an ipod?
08:45:35haxor is it just a lot of guess and check?
08:45:36GodEaterhax: no - you can use cygwin, vmware, or colinux
08:45:37amiconnLinusN: Of course a more thorough solution in the fat driver is still possible, but this way we could get ipod80 support out the door. And I don't think performance will suffer much
08:45:39LloreanYou guys gonna talk about the 32/64mb issue on iPods as well at Devcon maybe?
08:46:01LinusNLlorean: put it ini the wiki
08:46:05haxGodEater: the actual thing that puts it on the ipod still works in windows, right? i already got cygwin installed
08:46:10GodEaterhax: as for debugging - use a lot of lcd_puts() lcd_update() calls.

08:46:38GodEaterhax, the tools to get it installed on the iPod run in windows yes - that's most definitely NOT the issue.
08:46:47haxGodEater: oh, that simplifies things then
08:46:55amiconnGodEater: ata_mmc does some more esoteric things with its block buffer because of the sh1 spi peculiarities
08:47:01GodEaterhax: have you read the wiki page descirbing the problem.
08:47:23haxGodEater: not in any detail, something about the hard drive controller
08:47:30GodEateramiconn: yes - that's where I got stuck - I couldn't work out which bits were needed for a generic ata solution, and which bits were specific to the sh1 issues.
08:47:33haxGodEater: btw, how confident is everyone that i can't brick my ipod trying this?
08:47:39amiconnhax: It's not the controller, but the drive itself
08:47:42GodEaterhax: 110%
08:48:10GodEaterno-one has managed to brick an iPod whilst hacking rockbox on one.
08:48:20***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
08:48:36GodEaterthe only way we know to do such a thing is to do something stupid like a hard reset during an *apple* firmware upgrade.
08:48:39haxGodEater: what's the magic reset-my-firmware button?
08:48:54amiconnThe controller is the same in all pp5020/5021/5022 devices as it's built into the pp
08:49:18haxshould i be working with svn or 2.5?
08:49:19GodEaterhax: see the ipod install forum - the sticky thread entitled "my ipod install went wrong" I wrote down the shortcuts there.
08:49:27haxGodEater: sweet
08:49:29GodEaterhax: svn. 2.5 is ancient
08:49:37amiconn2.5 is archos only

08:52:05haxhmm, i gotta remember how to install stuff like svn with cygwin
08:52:11haxhavent done anything like this on windows yet
08:52:38GodEaterhax: svn is in the cygwin setup program under development tools I think
08:53:18haxyeah, i think i need to download the setup again
08:53:33haxyou'd think it'd be some package management tool that's built in

09:04:32amiconnI mean, the ata specs say the disk's firmware is supposed to handle partial physical sector reads/writes, just the toshiba thing doesn't do it

09:06:52haxthis spec is massive
09:07:44GodEaterhax: I think I may have given you the wrong link - check around on a bit more
09:07:48amiconn"A performance penalty may be incurred when writing to devices that implement long physical sector feature set. A physical sector is read or written in a single operation. If a host system does not write all of the logical sectors in a physical sector during a single command the device may need to read the logical sectors that are not to be changed into memory and then write the entire physical sector,"
09:08:06amiconnTo me this looks like it implies the device should support it
09:09:07GodEaterah yes
09:09:29GodEaterI think when I read that bit, I assumed it was a warning to the developers on the host system that they needed to do it.
09:10:21LloreanWell, it says "the device may need to...", so at least it suggest to me what Amiconn said, but it is a little bit ambiguous.

09:35:24Mouser_XHmmm. I'm just thinking of the various formats I'd like to see in Rockbox. I thought "If I buy them (the person who makes the format/player/plugin) a player, maybe they'd port it?"
09:36:08scorcheyou would have to talk to individual people about that, but it is typically a lot of work and simply buying them the device is not enough

16:27:28AceNik___ markun:hey markun , so you porting new players i read
16:27:41markunAceNik___: if you browse a lot then 'dircache' might help a bit
16:28:03AceNik___what kind of values , should idle power-off have , disk spindown hav ?, sleep after lcd have ?
16:28:05markunand the backlight also consumes a lot, so have a short timeout for that helps too
16:28:25markunif you have dircache on you can have a short disk spindown
16:28:51markunbut I don't know how much a change for each setting will affect battery life
16:29:09markunAceNik___: well, I only worked on porting the gigabeat so far
16:29:18markunor rather porting rockbox to the gigabeat
16:29:20AceNik___i have 5 as a default vale for backlight , disk spindown , is that ok
16:29:35markunwhat about dircache?
16:30:12AceNik___well how much does the h10 give others, cause i know , im using every setting to the fullest n also saving bare minimums here n thr , got sexy audio from bass n treble settings , n EQ off
16:30:49AceNik___dircache is on yes, should i switch it off, but then that causes double n triple entries due to database loading to RAM
16:31:05AceNik___what player is that ?
16:32:04ArathisAceNik___: I'm getting about 8h on my H10/20GB. I don't have any EQ or things active though

16:33:30AceNik___Arathis:try keeping , dircache on , use database, load it to RAM, keep BASS:18, Treble:16, i feel this is the ultimate useage of the battery anyone would want to experience , n trust me the music rocks with this

16:36:04markunno, didn't check them out
16:36:44markunAceNik___: what is the HTML parser plugin used for?
16:37:15AceNik___markun: well i just use to wonder since im consuming the player so much , wanted to know what others use , although i recommend these, i wanted to know if there is a way , that dircache would not be used again or somethin like that sort to save extra processin
16:37:48AceNik___ markun: well it converts the HTML file to a .txt, to view, its good in a certain way , though
16:38:13markunAceNik___: one problem is that the CPU in the H10 doesn't come with any documentation. It's sure we are not getting optimal battery life because of that.

16:57:00bluebrotherdo we really want to have a feature request for divx being open? We already have over 500 requests
16:57:18bluebrotherIMO we should close a lot more feature requests.

17:16:20linuxstbbluebrother: But what's the point of a feature request tracker then?
17:16:51linuxstbIf we close things, people just request them again...
17:17:47GodEateryeah, just keep a DivX request open, and fill it with sarcastic comments instead :)
17:18:53GodEatersomething like : "...for DivX support in rockbox, please contact who are working on support for us"
17:19:43GodEateror is that a bit too mean ?
17:19:52 Join jgarvey [0] (
17:21:42linuxstbGodEater: I don't think any comments are needed - I think it's a valid request and will happen when someone does it. The more video codecs we can support the better IMO.
17:21:54amiconnDivX supports isn't that far-fetched imho. Afaik the video format in the X5 OF is mpeg4
17:22:01 Join Thundercloud [0] (n=thunderc@
17:22:42markunI don't think so either, but until we have a DAP which can do scaling in real time I don't think adding a video codec is adding a feature
17:23:05linuxstbHow is that any different to audio codecs?
17:23:21markunlinuxstb: because you don't need to reencode your audio files
17:23:36badsheepyunless they are wma :)
17:23:41amiconnmarkun: Well, technically you do with AAC on coldfire...
17:24:11markunamiconn: reencode to what?
17:24:12 Quit gursikh (Client Quit)
17:24:12GodEatermarkun makes a good point
17:24:23linuxstbmarkun: Also, divx/xvid have a far more flexible range of possible framerates - MPEG-2 has no options between 15fps and 24fps.
17:24:41markunlinuxstb: I would have no problem in switching to a better codec
17:25:33markunbut I suspect that people request divx/xvid because they want to play their downloaded/ripped files
17:25:36amiconnmarkun: Lower bitrate or different codec, as aac isn't realtime on coldfire
17:25:58amiconn...yet aac was added to rockbox (of course in the hope of getting it realtime one day)
17:26:15markunamiconn: true..
17:26:34bluebrotherbut a audio codec is about Rockbox main purpose: playing music.
17:26:57bluebrotheror has playing video became a main purpose of Rockbox in the meantime?
17:27:07amiconnvalid point
17:27:11linuxstbRockbox needs to compete with the original firmwares we want to replace.
17:27:34linuxstbLike it or not, I think Rockbox needs to evolve to include video.
17:27:44bluebrotherhmm. Really? How much people in here care about the OF?
17:27:49amiconnCurrently, rockbox is a dap firmware because it runs on daps
17:28:30linuxstbBut people don't seem to make DAPs any more...
17:28:31amiconnAs soon as it's ported to the first pmp, it will also become a pmp firmware, and video codecs will be required
17:29:04bluebrotherof course it could evolve into something that includes video. But that's still a long way, and until there is support for video in the core new video formats aren't in the main scope.
17:29:26amiconnI dare to say that as long as we're only dealing with daps with added video functionality, we don't absolutely need to support video
17:29:52amiconnIt's a nice-to-have, nothing more
17:29:57markunI really like the video playback
17:30:30amiconnBut if people want to work on video support, why not? As long as those people wouldn't work on other areas of rockbox otherwise, that's okay
17:30:34markunit adds a lot of fun to rockbox for me
17:30:43bluebrotherpersonally I'd prefer a working replacement for a feature-blown replacement. And there are still issues with the playback engine.
17:30:55markunamiconn: jhMikeS works on every part of rockbox it seems :)
17:31:06amiconnI don't care much about video. To me it's mainly a "look, we can even do _that_" feature

17:31:27bluebrotherI don't have any problem with people working on video
17:31:34markunamiconn: for the existing Gigabeat owners it was a big issue
17:31:54amiconnThe gigabeat is a nasty target ;)
17:32:04linuxstbbluebrother: Going back to the original question, what kinds of feature requests do you think we should or should not allow to remain?
17:32:06markunamiconn: did you see one yet?
17:32:11amiconn(even though I once watched a whole LotR episode on my recorder...)
17:32:13markunthere will be 2 at the devcon
17:32:46bluebrotherI think feature requests that are unlikely to be in the scope of Rockbox for a good while shouldn't be there.
17:33:24linuxstbBut isn't "the scope of Rockbox" whatever people choose to work on?
17:33:30preglowit is
17:33:37bluebrotheras that request are usually made by users, and if it doesn't happen in like, the next 2 years, then that request isn't useful
17:33:38preglowno point in calling it anything else
17:33:44bluebrotherneither for Rockbox nor for the user.

17:34:10amiconnlinuxstb: Get your first pmp port up & running if you want video in the core...
17:34:14markunbluebrother: some people are pointed to the feature requests if they want to work on rockbox..
17:34:26preglowamiconn: why shouldn't video be in the core until then?
17:34:26bluebrotherI don't say we shouldn't work on those things if someone feels to do so. But having such tasks rotting around only clutters the tracker
17:34:33bluebrothermarkun: we could close them as "later"
17:34:36preglowamiconn: who cares if a player was meant to be able to play video if it can do so
17:35:00GodEaterI'd love to see some stats on the tracker about the number of requests that actually get picked up
17:35:09GodEateras a ratio of total requests
17:35:19markunpreglow: exactly why it was so crazy of Toshiba to put a nice screen and 300MHz CPU in a DAP..
17:35:34markunand hardly using them\
17:35:51preglowwhat kind of a screen does gigabeat have?
17:36:00GodEatermarkun: maybe that SAT encryption was a real beast? ;)
17:36:13amiconnAn unpractical colour screen...
17:36:21markunpreglow: the X has a 2.4" 240x320 18-bit TFT
17:36:25GodEaternot impractical for watching videos
17:36:27markunthe F only 2.2, but still nice
17:36:44toffe82the X is really nice ;)
17:37:15*amiconn wonders whether the gigabeat screen also has that nasty angle dependency as the H300 and X5 and most other mobile colour tfts I saw
17:37:32markunamiconn: you'll see it soon
17:37:58preglowonly displays i've seen that doesn't have that are computer displays
17:38:07preglowand they too have it, just to a lesser degree
17:38:16markunwell, if you look at from more than 45 degrees the image gets darker or lighter, but otherwise it looks fine to me
17:38:20preglowi think video in the core sounds like a nice idea anyway
17:38:26preglowcan't see a single reason why we wouldn't want it
17:39:56amiconnFirst, the core playback engine needs to be stable
17:41:37GodEaterI see that comment about the playback engine a lot. In what way is it "unstable" ?
17:41:51toffe82the spec for the lcd of the F give 140° vertical and 130 horizontal at cr=10 , don't know what is cr

21:43:10amiconnIt costs a bit of precision
21:43:22pixelmawhy's that?

21:48:28amiconnFor the explanation I assume the range as 100. Then 0..9 is mapped to 0, 10..29 is mapped to 20, 30..49 is mapped to 40 ..... 90 to 100 is mapped to 100
21:48:52amiconnSo each graphic is used for 20 steps, only the ones at the end are used for 10 steps
21:49:41 Join Dwyloc [0] (i=53688643@gateway/web/cgi-irc/
21:49:56amiconnHaving a special 'full' graphic would shift this mapping, so that this last graphic is used for a single level only, and all others would have to cover a wider range
21:50:20pixelmayes, understood - was just thinking that there are ways to achieve this too... with the "doubling-up-tactic" ;)
21:51:15amiconnWell, either a special 'full' graphic spreads all others or you need one more graphic
21:52:46nlsamiconn: iirc it was you that added the battery charginh animation in the statusbar, is there a reason that it is always dark grey even on color targets?
21:52:46amiconnAnd with a 'full' graphic this round-to-nearest mechanism makes less sense, but having it like this feels more natural than the round-down which the multi-value conditionals do in the wps (afaik)
21:53:15amiconnI didn't add the charging animation, and I didn't choose the grey
21:53:21 Join flattwin [0] (
21:53:42amiconnI merely merged the special code for greyscale targets with the older code for mono targets
21:53:55amiconnColour targets came later
21:54:05nlsok, then my memory is off as usual, would anyone be against drawing the animation with the foreground color on color targets?
21:54:40amiconnThen you cannot distinguish it from the frame and level filling, which is drawn in the foreground colour
21:55:06Dwylocamiconn: After reading your comment about AAC on Coldfire under rockbox earlier I thought I should point out that AAC audio files playback fine on the H1XX targets so I would expect them to play back fine on other Coldfire targets as well.
21:55:17amiconnThe very purpose of this grey stuff is to make the animation always distinct from the level (if possible, i.e. on greyscale targets and higher)
21:55:43linuxstbDwyloc: What bitrates are your files?
21:56:09linuxstbDwyloc: I'm pretty sure my 128kbps AAC test file is fine on my h140, but haven't tested anything higher.

21:57:06amiconnDO you have the foreground colour set to grey?
21:57:56nlsno it's white, and the battery has a white frame and inside the frame everything is grey except the part of the backdrop that shows, while animating
21:58:27 Part a1titude
21:58:52amiconnThe frame *and* current level should be white then
21:59:01amiconnOnly the animation is drawn in grey
21:59:25amiconnOf course you won't see the level if it's (near) zero
